Tuesday Tidbits


My brain feels mushy.

It may or may not be because of the fact that it was 101° today.

And it's only June 7th.

So, my brain is currently thinking in bursts of tidbits.

Mind if I share?

1). Sometimes I freak out at the fact that I am 27 years old. It's not the number per se, it's just that life consists of so many adult things: bills, spending money on non-fun things like new breaks and heartworm pills for le pups, evenings full of priming and painting, and extreme excitement usually involves finding a really great antique shop.


2). I realize it is not okay to wear jean skirts anymore. Mostly because of my age but also because it is not 2001. However, just about every article of clothing I own was dirty...so I caved last weekend. (P.S. The pic is actually of the mirror we are going to put in our NEW BATHROOM!)


3). New homeowner words of wisdom: 1. Hire professionals for some things. Although I LOVE a really great DIY project, some things just need to be left for the pros. I have recently concluded that I am not nor will I ever be Young House Love. Oh, and another tidbit: Lock your dogs up while painting. Otherwise, you may end up with white paw prints all over your dining room rug.


5). I have a serious ice cream problem during the summer. Exhibit A: I ate ice cream every night for seven days in a row last week alone. Photo#1: An AMAZING new yogurt place in town Photo#2: AMAZING homemade ice cream at my in-laws.



6). Although I have a strong love for Quik Trip, they are making my desperate attempt to stop drinking pop VERY difficult by offering 32 oz. drinks for 59¢ all summer long.


7). We've recently discovered that Samson is a little collector...or maybe a hoarder? For example, he takes his kibbles and places them in a neat pile. And then the other day while we were demoing the bathroom, we came out only to find this:

I didn't know you couldn't wear jean skirts anymore! Thank you for letting me though, I just switched my winter to summer wardrobe and there was a jean skirt hiding in there! :)

I agree with you on everything CEPT the jean skirt bit! LOL I think we are bit old to wear super short ones, but I do wear a nice jean skirt that goes to my knees that I wear for teaching and I get lots of compliments on it!!! I've had it since college from Express.
